A Little Futbol:
It so happened that the week we were in town, the most popular team in Argentina, the Boca Jrs had a home game (randomly, when I lived in Barcelona back in '03, I happened to see FC Barcelona play Boca Jrs). Having heard that they are some of the most entertaining games in the world to go to and the stadium is pretty famous, James and I knew it was a no brainer. In order to get tickets, you actually have to be a member of the "Boca Association" and show your member ID card when entering the stadium. This was a little unique, so to get around the situation, we basically had to go with a tour (which cost an "arm and a leg" but did include pizza and unlimited beer beforehand, which helps). By the time we got to the stadium, there was a consistent downpour of rain – thankfully our seats were under the roof. Throughout the game, the entire crowd was signing and dancing, it was pretty cool and having sat next to an English couple, they mentioned they'd never seen anything like it even when compared with their Premier league games. Overall it was a great time, though it did end in a 0-0 tie (they played a team called the "Estudiantes" – seriously, who names their team "the students?? That is not intimidating). During the game, all James and I wanted to see is how crazy the crowd would get if a goal was scored – but to our dismay we were out of luck in this sense.
